Members of the RCMP-led Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) arrested and charged one Windsor resident with False Report of a Terrorist Activity and Public Mischief.

In December 2012, the Windsor RCMP received information of a possible terrorist plot involving several males in the Windsor area.  INSET investigators immediately began investigations into the reported plot. Extensive interviews and enquiries were conducted which led to investigators determining the reports of terrorist activity were false.

On December 24, 2012, INSET investigators with the assistance of the Windsor Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police arrested Abdul Raham Elsafady(33 years old) of Windsor, Ontario.   Elsafady was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Windsor Provincial Court on March 26, 2013 to answer to the following charges:

  • False Report of Terrorist Activity, contrary to Section 83.231 of the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Public Mischief, contrary to Section 140 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

The RCMP and partners take all threats to national security seriously, and to determine their credibility must fully investigate these threats. Investigating potential threats consumes significant resources and time for the police, as well as other agencies and partners who play a role in public safety.
